Travis Barker is finally breaking his silence on his dramatic hospitalization.
The drummer was taken to two different hospitals earlier this week for what he describes as “life-threatening” pancreatitis. It got so frightening that he even tweeted “God save me.” We later learned that he was barely able to walk due to how painful his stomach aches were. Thankfully, with Kourtney Kardashian on his side, he was able to pull through.
He has now taken to Instagram Stories to tell everyone what happened:
“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized since. During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life threatening pancreatitis. I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better.”
He is set to join Machine Gun Kelly on his Mainstream Sellout Tour next month. We wish him a speedy recovery so he can make it out on the road.
